Pretty much got everything with that one. Great find.
Id actually like to see more conventionals converted. Lots to like abou t that layout IMO.
I do like the conventional look. Being a mechanic at heart though I saw this design as being easy to maintain, but I've never worked on a cab forward, or the whatever they're called in the bus world, and I've worked on a couple pushers before, RVs and transits and I hated it! Thankful for what i found for sure, thank you!

Pretty much the perfect bus. I'd loved to have gotten one of those, but I prefer the older grill look and got mine for a song. It's a bit short though. Yours is about as big as they come!

Yeah, I do think I was shorted at foot or 2. The public school buses that run around here have 5 or 6 Windows after the rear axle, mine has 4, but that's ok. Thank you all for the compliments. Also I found the build sticker on the air cleaner, it has a 4.10 gear ratio, that willl be great for the highway! I'm so excited to begin!
